Best Barcelona Photoshoot Spots

Barcelona’s ancient city walls and subterranean stone corridors that date over 2000 years offer up an eclectic contrast against the trendy tapas bars and Gaudi’s famed architecture. Beaches teeming with sun worshipers make for a fun bike ride or lazy stroll along the Mediterranean – with the sea beckoning you to take a dip. Indulge in too many tapas and a big bowl of paella, or visit a world-class molecular gastronomy restaurant. After the sun goes down the city bumps with the rhythms of flamenco and brassy jazz spill out of basements. Closer to midnight the clubs fill and revelers dance the night away. Below are the top 4 photoshoot spots our Barcelona photographers recommend for your next trip.

Parc Guell

30 Min – 1 Hour – 90 Min – 2 Hours

Unleash your creative side in this masterpiece of Gaudi. Be sure to buy the ticket for your photographer in advance, Parc Guell opens at 8:30am.

Gothic Quarter

30 Min – 1 Hour – 90 Min – 2 Hours

Most popular! Roam the narrow cobbled streets of the Gothic Quarter. If you have 90 min or more you can visit the shores of Barceloneta.

Bunkers de Carmel

30 Min – 1 Hour – 90 Min – 2 Hours

Take in the incredible views of Barcelona. You’ll need to climb steep stairs for 30 minutes, but its worth it!

El Born & Parc Ciutadella

1 Hour – 90 Min – 2 Hours

Explore the eclectic streets of El Born and then visit picturesque Parc de Ciutadella.

Photography FAQ

How much does a photoshoot cost?

Prices vary by city, ensuring you the best rates. Choose between 4 different packages that range from 30 minutes up to 2 hours. The high-resolution photos are professionally edited and delivered by email in a private online gallery within 5 business days. See pricing for your destination here.

What is a vacation photographer?

Book a fun experience with a local professional photographer who knows all the best photo spots, when the best light will be, and how to beat the crowds to capture magical moments without tons of other tourists in the background. Local Lens vacation photographers are artists that are handpicked for quality, style, and skill. Not only will they take amazing photos, but will edit them to be beautiful photo souvenirs you’ll treasure for years to come.

How will I receive my photos?

All photos are professionally edited and delivered in a private online gallery where you can download your favorite photos in high-resolution jpg format. Additional files and high-quality prints from our professional partner labs are also available for purchase. You should receive an email with your gallery link within five business days.

What is the best time for lighting and avoiding crowds?

We love to shoot during ‘Golden Hour’, the first or last hour of sunlight which helps produce a softer and more warm light due to the indirect sunlight that is evenly diffused. We highly suggest avoiding anytime between noon and 2pm, since they tend to be the busiest and brightest times of day. Check out our Golden Hour Calculator here.

How far in advance should I hire my photographer?

We’ll do our best to accommodate any last minute bookings, but to ensure you get your preferred date, time, and photographer, we recommend booking at least 1-2 weeks in advance.

How do I choose my photographer?

First, request your dates to check availability in your destination. Once you receive an email response, you can reserve the date with your favorite photographer and start planning all the fun details!

How do I hire a surprise proposal photographer?

Your proposal is a story that you will never tire of telling. Capture it with beautiful professional photos that you’ll look back on for years to come. Request your dates and book your favorite photographer to begin. Choose your wedding proposal spot and the photographer will be hidden and ready to capture the moment, paparazzi-style. Afterwards, the photographer will introduce themselves and you both can enjoy a fun engagement photoshoot to capture the post-engagement glow. These photos will be perfect for your official engagement announcement, wedding website, save-the-date cards, and wedding invitations!

How many people can join my photoshoot?

All of our packages are time-based. 1 hour is usually perfect for a family photographer session, but if you plan on having 6 or more people we normally recommend at least 90 minutes. However, the size of your party is ultimately up to you!

When you hire a photographer who owns the pictures?

You have the right to use the photos for personal use, so please share them, print them, and hang them on your wall! Your photographer and Local Lens retain the copyright of the photos. We would love to show off your amazing photos in our portfolio, but if you prefer to keep the photos private, just let us know.

What is your refund and rescheduling policy?

Our Peace of Mind policy offers free cancellations up to 7 days before your photoshoot:

  • Reservations may be cancelled up to 7 days prior to the shoot date for a 90% refund
  • Shoot reservations cancelled less than 7 days prior to the shoot: 50% refund
  • We will attempt to accommodate any rescheduling requests, but we cannot guarantee we will be able to do so. Last minute changes are also not guaranteed. Shoot time missed due to late arrivals may be forfeited, and the number of photos delivered can be adjusted to reflect the actual time spent together.
  • All sales are final and there is no refund for cancelled shoots within 24 hours of the shoot or ‘no-shows’.
  • In the case of bad weather, exploring the city under the rain can be very exciting, and it will make for great photos (trust us!). If the weather is too unbearable, you can coordinate with your photographer to re-schedule or we will issue a full refund at our discretion.
